Two fetal globin genes (G gamma and A gamma) from one chromosome of a lowland gorilla (Gorilla gorilla gorilla) have been sequenced and compared to three human loci (a G gamma-gene and two A gamma-alleles). A comparison of regions of local homology among these five sequences indicates that long after the duplication that produced the two nonallelic(More)
Persistent hepatitis C virus (HCV) infection appears to trigger the onset of immune exhaustion to potentially assist viral persistence in the host, eventually leading to hepatocellular carcinoma. The role of HCV on the spontaneous expression of markers suggestive of immune exhaustion and spontaneous apoptosis in immune cells of chronic HCV (CHC) disease(More)
